US President Donald Trump's envoy to the Middle East peace negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, published a farewell message shortly before leaving office, in which he talked about the difference between killing Israelis and Palestinians.

greatest friend in its history." But without any friendly words to the Palestinian side.
He declined to mention the Palestinian Authority at all in his letter, and attacked Hamas and Islamic Jihad, saying that they are ready to sacrifice the lives of two million Palestinians in order to achieve their mission, "the destruction of the State of Israel," adding that

Greenblatt expressed regret over the obstacles preventing the Trump administration from "improving the lives of the Palestinians" and the absence of any solution to end the control of "Hamas" and "Islamic Jihad" in the Gaza Strip.
The envoy also noted that his grief over the civilian casualties in the conflict mainly concerns Israelis who were “killed in cold blood by terrorist attacks and rockets fired from Gaza,” adding: “I am saddened by some believing that there is ethical equality between
those killed by terrorists in cold blood. And those killed by chance because of Israel's continued need to defend itself from attacks. "
